There was something in the air 

that week of Oct. 9- 1 4, other 

than the annual rain and 

dampness which descends 

upon FSC without fail every 

homecoming weekend. There 

was more — an enthusiasm 

which began on Monday and 

grew throughout the week. 

Beginning Monday, last-minute 

plans were made for 

decorations by clubs, dorms 

and Greeks. On Tuesday, a 

steak night was held in the 

Dining Hall, followed by a 

Coffee house featuring Yukon 

Jack and the Wharf Rats on 

Wednesday night. Former 

student government adviser 

and dean of men George Turley 

marshalled the annual parade, 

which was held Thursday 

evening under cloudless skies. 

Unlike previous parades, the 

line of march began at the Post 

Office and moved through 

downtown Fairmont to Mid-City 

Parking Lot, where 

cheerleaders, coaches, players, 

visiting bands and students 

participated in a pre-game 

The annual concert was 
changed from Sunday to Friday 

Homecoming highlights: 

night, in hope of generating 

better attendance. A 

disappointing turnout braved 

the cold temperatures and rain 

to see comedian Larry Beezer 

and The Flying Burrito Brothers 

perform in Colebank Gym. 

The Eston K. Feaster Center for 

Physical Education (Feaster 

Center) was officially dedicated 

as part of Saturday's activities. 

Over 1 ,200 spectators dodged 

intermittent showers to see FSC 

fall prey to West Virginia State's 

Yellow Jackets, 17-10, at an 

afternoon game played at 

Rosier Field.

While FSC students 
recovered from the 
merriment of 
homecoming, fire crews 
were called across town 
at 5:06 a.m. Oct. 15, to 
attend to a blaze at the 
Cabaret, a local club and 
favorite nightspot 
among the college 
crowd. By 7:30 a.m. the 
blaze was under control, 
but the structure was 
declared an $85,000 
loss to owner Carmen 
Seccuro. In early 
December, the 
establishment relocated 
on Fairmont Avenue, and

The high cost of education — 


Inflation has taken hold of a large part of our lives as 

well as our pocketbooks. Prices have soared, 

seemingly gathering momentum as they go. Costs 

have risen — from bubble gum and baseball cards 

to homes, automobiles, and even the cost of a 

college education. 

Fairmont State College administrators have found it 
necessary to raise tuition 20 percent this year. The 
increase was implemented to keep pace with rising 

costs nationwide. 

However, financial aid has also increased. Not only 

have more monies been allotted for each individual, 

but a greater percentage of students are eligible to 

receive aid. An estimated $1.5 million was 

distributed to over 2,300 Fairmont State students 

during the 1 978-79 school year. 

The bookstore has also been affected by rising 

costs. The price of books and supplies remains one 

of the most controversial issues on the FSC campus. 

The bookstore itself is not a profitmaking 

organization. The main function is to supply 

Fairmont students with educational materials at a 

low cost.

Freshman orientation: 

An introduction 
to F9C campus life 

Freshman orientation begins in April with the 

selection of 60 freshman counselors. To be 

considered for the job one has to be a mature 

upperclassman. A reputation for being, acting, or 

getting crazy is helpful. Counselors decide what 

activities the arriving freshmen will enjoy plus will 

benefit their stay here at FSC. 

This year orientation began Aug. 27 with 

counselors waiting at the dorms to help the 

arrivals unpack. Some newcomers brought U- 

Hauls, but obviously did not realize that the 

trailers held more than the dorm rooms. 

The moving-in process was followed by a hotdog 

picnic in the Nickel. Then a Gong Show was held 

for the freshmen's enjoyment, but as always, the 

counselors also amused themselves. A dance 

began after the Gong Show. 

Registration began Monday and many freshmen 
discovered that pre-registration is a good idea. 

Various seminars were held between registration 

times. Among the seminars offered were those on 

birth control, study habits, and the merits of Greek 

life. One program that many upperclassmen 

wanted to attend was on "What to do in 


A disco Monday night provided entertainment. Many 

of the freshmen proved they could dance, even if 

they couldn't think of a way to get rid of their beanies 

during the rest of the activities. 

"Where is it-What is it?", an orientation tradition, 

was held on Tuesday afternoon, with the different 

groups participating in a junk art sculpture and 

counselor hunt. 

The purposes of orientation are not always clear to 

the freshmen. However, it is meant to introduce 

them to life on campus socially, academically, and

Student government activities: 

Coffee houses, cultural 

events, concerts, highlight 

1 978-79 term 

A variety of activities were 

sponsored by student government 

during the 1978-79 year, in an 

effort to appeal to all members of 

the FSC community. 

During the fall semester, the 

homecoming concert with "The 

Flying Burrito Brothers" and a 

coffee house featuring "Yukon 

Jack and the Wharf Rats" were 


Herbie Mann, internationally 

known jazz flutist, performed in 

Wallman Hall in the fall. 

Dances and coffee houses were 

scheduled throughout both 

semesters with live bands 

providing music for dancing and 


Nationally known relaxation 

expert Jerry Teplitz and the 

American Mime Theater Company 

also brought a touch of culture to 

campus during the fall semester. 

The Peking Opera Company, Dan 
Wagoner and Dancers and a 
Stillwater/Atlanta Rhythm Section 
concert highlighted the spring 
term activities.

Although toga parties were the rage, FSC Greeks 
chose more formal attire for their annual 
Christmas dance, the Holly Ball, Dec. 1 5. 

Amid a ballroom festooned with tinsel, glitter, and 

a huge Christmas tree, the coronation of the Holly 

Ball queen occurred. This year the sponsoring 

Interpanhellenic Council had each candidate pick 

a rose — the one with the white rose was crowned 

queen. Sue Bartolf, Phi Mu candidate, selected

That's the way it was 

"Animal House" and "Grease" were 

THE movies. Toga parties were THE 

parties. Disco was THE dance. 

And that's pretty much the way the year 

went. The male population of FSC still 

preferred blue jeans but a coed was just 

as likely to wear a dress. 

Playing cards or backgammon helped to 

pass the time between classes. Studying 

remained inevitable.

II Movie Review 
TTTTTrii#iiiimi#iiiiiiii#» fltonnAmnnmmn HHft 

From Army heroes to Army 
scandals — that's the line of topics 
for the student government movie 
presentations to be shown Nov. 30 
in the Student Center Ballroom. 

Fatten, the reveled biographical 
epic of one of America's most 
renowned war heroes, shows the 
heroic view of the armed forces. 

The 169-minute feature high- 
lights the great moments of the 
life of General George S. Patton 
(portrayed by George C. Scott), 
the brillant commander of the 
Third Army in World War II. It 
covers the defeat of Rommel, 
Patton's race across France li- 
berating 12,000 towns, and the 
capture of Sicily. 

Patton's antics that facinated 
the German high command and 
his mental anguish upon being 
nationally disgraced for slapping a 
soldier are brought to life 
Scott's performance. 




Devils, horrors, spooks and 
vampires head an all-star cast of 
evil in the big feature of the Hal- 
loween season, student govern- 
ment's Halloween Movie Mara- 

Five feature films, lasting for 
approximately eight hours, will be 
shown in the ballroom of the 
student center Tuesday, begin- 
ning at 6 p.m. 

The Omen, a thrilling tale of the 
supernatural that has terrified 
audiences across the nation, tells 
the story of the child of Satan 
being born to a mortal couple. 

The Legend of Hell House, star- 
ring Roddy McDowell, is a classic 
example of the haunted house tale 
which characterizes Halloween. 

Released in 1932 by MGM, the 
movie Freaks was banned in 

40 Movies 

New York Times critic Vincent 
Canby made this comment on the 
film, "PATTON is a loving, often 
sentimental, semi-official portrait 
ofa man it characterizes as a near- 
schizo; a man who admitted that 
he 'damn well loved war,' was 
surprised and somewhat taken 
aback when men near to him were 
killed, who quoted the Bible, 
believed in reincarnation, had the 
political acumen of Marie Antoi- 

Stanley Kauffmann, another 

critic, said it was, "a film that is 
made carefully, photographed 
superbly and directed generally 
well, with an irresistible perform- 
ance in the leading role, marvelous 
battle effects and — above all— an 
air of intelligent candor. " 



Britain for 30 years because of the 
grisly, although compassionate, 
realism of the revenge wrought by 
the deformed and mutant people 
of a circus sideshow. The film uses 
real people of the circus sideshow 
such as dwarfs, midgets, bearded 
ladies and giants. 

People who liked the television 
soap opera Dark Shadows are 
bound to enjoy House of Dark 
Shadows, a 96-minute movie re- 
leased in 1970. The cast of the 
series portray their same char- 
acters, as vampire Barnabas 
Collins searches for the bride he 
lost many years before. 

The Other is the story of a 10- 
year-old who is possessed by the 
spirit of his dead twin. His twin's 
evil spirit forces him to commit a 
series of horrifying murders. 

Student government plans to 
make pop and popcorn available 
at cost to students so they will 
have something to munch on be- 
sides their fingernails.

vne of America's most re- 
nowned epics of all time will be 
shown in the ballroom of the 
student center Feb. 14-16. 

Gone With the Wind is the 
enthralling love story of a beauti- 
ful southern belle, Scarlett 
O'Hara, and a roguish gambler, 
Rhett Butler, set amidst the 
beauty of the South and the awe- 
someness of the Civil War. 

This film, made in 1939, stars 
the cast that made a best-selling 
novel the most popular movie ever 
produced. Clark Gable and Vivien 
Leigh in the lead roles are sup- 
ported by Olivia de Havilland, 
Leslie Howard and a cast of thou- 

Margaret Mitchell's novel took 
three years to make into this great 

film. The result was a love story 
that was never to be forgotten nor 
equalled in its grandeur. 

It combines history, romance, 
courage, happiness, sorrow and 
unconquered pride as the story 
mounts to a climax that is like no 

"It is a superior illustration of a 
large chunk of American legend 
and myth, a grand illusion of 
imagined people living through a 
nostalgic-drenched experience, ' ' 
stated critic Bosley Crowther. 

Another review said, "Big, good 
and great films have been made 
since, but Gone With the Wind set 
the pattern for the big ones which 
followed ... it became the moni- 
tor film which no spectacle has 
since duplicated ... a film of 
enduring quality. ' ' 

Animation, comedy 

Comedy and animation are the 

order of the evening as student 
government presents a double 
feature movie program for the 
student body on March 15 at 8 
p.m. in the Ballroom. 

Wizards is an animated fantasy 
set ten million years in the future. 
It is the story of a struggle be- 
tween twin wizards who represent 
good and evil that fight for control 
of the earth after it has been 
almost completely destroyed by a 
nuclear holocaust. 

Avatar, the good wizard, tries 
to prevent Blackwolf, his evil 
twin, from winning the world for 
technology by resurrecting Nazi 
propaganda. The epic unfolds as 

Producer /director Ralph Bakshi 
is credited with reviving the lost 
art of feature animation with this 
and two of his other films, Fritz 
the Cat and The Lord of the Rings. 
Take the Money and Run is the 
other half of the double feature. 
Woody Allen, "the loser" or 
"Schmiel," made his style char- 
acter a hit in this, his first film as 

Allen portrays Virgil, a clumsy 
crook who never seems to be able 
to come out on top. He meets and 
marries "the nice girl" of the film, 
but continues his life at unsuc- 
cessful crime. Even his "This is a 
stick-up" note is so badly written 
it is unreadable.

Spring concert features Atlanta Rhythm Section 

Atlanta Rhythm Section performed in concert April

Stillwater served as warm-up band for the concert, 
which was held for the first time in the new Feaster 


Since the Feaster Center was not constructed with 

the necessary electrical voltage to host such a 

concert, student government rented a generator to 

provide power, and at the same time made plans 

for the purchase of a permanent generator system, 

so that all future concerts may now be held in the 

Feaster Center. 

Approximately 2,500-3,000 students and area 
residents attended the "Champagne Jam," which 
featured all the songs from the latest ARS album. 

Students were employed by student government to 

work prior to and during the concert with 

professional road crews to set up equipment for 

both bands.

football — 

the season 

that could 

have been 

The 1 978 Fighting Falcon football squad under new 

head coach Dave Ritchie enjoyed a winning season, 

along with impressive defeats over WVIAC champs 

Concord and Northern division champs Shepherd. 

Ritchie stated, "Even though we didn't make the 

playoffs this year, we still won our Coal Bowl, since 

we beat the best in Concord and Shepherd." 

At one point, it looked like the Falcon football team 
might suffer through a dreadful season. However 

the Falcons managed to fight back in their last 
three encounters to secure a winning season. 

The week before the season finale, FSC beat division 
leader Shepherd 35-7. This meant the Fighting 
Falcons still had a slim chance to enter post-season 
play in the Coal Bowl. 

However the combination of wins and losses that 
had to take place in the conference that day didn't 
work out and the Falcons found themselves sitting at 
home thinking of the season that could have been.

The season . . . 

Starting the season on Sept. 9, the Falcons hosted 

Edinboro. When the first quarter ended, it seemed 

FSC had the win sewn up. However the Fighting 

Scots battled back and Fairmont had to settle for a 

26-26 tie. 

The next week Bluef ield played host to the 

Falcons. This time FSC jumped out to a big lead 

and didn't let it out of their grasp. The Falcons 

won 40-7 and racked up 470 total yards for the 

day. Jerome Hoes had a big day for the Maroon 

and White by returning a kickoff 92 yards to 

paydirt, and rushing 63 yards from scrimmage for 

another score. 

In the third week of the season Fairmont traveled 

to Salem and suffered the biggest defeat of the 

season in a grudge match. Salem contained the 

Falcons and the final score readTigers 9-FalconsO. 

Things didn't get any better the following week. 
Wesleyan handed FSC their second defeat and left 
the Falcons winless at home. That final was 19-14, 

with Fairmont committing numerous turnovers. 

Undefeated Concord couldn't claim that 
unblemished mark after Fairmont 
finished with them in Beckley in week number 
five. The final score was 1 4-7 and Ritchie credited 
the whole squad for their effort against the future 
WVIAC champs. 

Unable to afford another loss, the Falcon season 
hit its lowest point as Fairmont fell 1 7- 1 6 to W.Va. 
Tech in week number seven. 

At the half-way point, the record was even at 2-2- 
1, with the homecoming contest coming up 
against W.Va. State. The Falcons were as cold as 
the temperature and lost 17-10. Turnovers again 
contributed to the unfortunate outcome.

The season . . . 

A trip to Glenville was next for the losing Falcons. 

However this time the offense generated 433 total 

yards and FSC won 2 1 -20. With just 1 :35 left on 

the clock, Hoes scored from the six. Ritchie 

decided to go for two with Hoes again carrying 

and it worked. 

That victory seemed to be the turning point, for 

the Falcons had little trouble in their final two 

weeks of action. 

Paul Kuzio set a Falcon interception record when 

he intercepted his eighth pass of'the season as 

FSC handed Shepherd a 35-7 loss. 

FSC faced West Liberty in their last chance for a 

winning season. Hoes suffered a broken ankle on 

the third play from scrimmage. It took the Falcons 

a while to recover, but they lit the scoreboard for 

20 fourth quarter points to clinch the victory, 30- 1 4. 

The Falcons' record stood at 5-4-1, but it 
remained the season that could have been.

Facility allows student recreation 

A new building, the Feaster Center, brought new 
opportunity to FSC. 

The $4.2 million project seats 4,000 in the main 

arena which is more than just a basketball court. It 

also housed the spring concert and graduation 

exercises. Fourteen offices, four classrooms, seven 

locker rooms and a swimming pool that meets 

NCAA regulations are also included. 

Handball courts are available for classes, 
intramurals, racquetball and paddleball. Presently, 

LEFT: Weight and exercise 

equipment are available for 

student use. LOWER RIGHT:

dressing room. BELOW: A new 

handball court introduces the

the utility room serves as a weight room but is 
being converted for that particular purpose. 

The advantages over Colebank Gymnasium are 

obvious, besides better overall conditions, the 

center is more spacious and better meets the needs 

of the division. 

Colebank is now used for classes, intramurals, 
athletic practices and recreation. 

If the Feaster Center has problems, it is limited to a 

once leaking roof and the lack of an originally 

planned weight room.

season after only three games due to lack of 

financial aid and participation. They finished 0-

Indiana State University, West Virginia University, 

and Morris Harvey College during the season and 

also participated in tournament action. The women's 

water polo team began the year mainly as a clinic; 

and although they didn't have any matches, they will 

have plenty of experience for next year. The men's

Finishing their season with a

1978-79 Fighting Falcons 

went through several 

changes, including finding 

themselves in a spanking 

new gym. 

The Eston K. Feaster Center 

for Physical Education was 

opened in the summer of '78, 

providing the FSC 

roundballers with a place of 

their own after playing in the 

Marion County Armory in 

past years. The new facility 

seats 4,000. 

Dave Cooper, former Falcon 

player, was named as 

assistant basketball coach 

replacing Mike Arcure. 

Cooper, in the Falcon ranks 

from 1 967-7 1 , received the 

"Mr. Hustle Award" in the 

1971 NAIA tournament. He 

was selected to the coveted 

NAIA All-Tournament team 

as well as being named to the 

All-WVIAC team both his 

junior and senior years.

at the beginning of the 
season behind mainstay 
seniors Harvey Austin and 
Kevin Claudio and freshman 
Mike Stone from Logan. 

Claudio, who was named to 
the AII-WVC team during his 
junior year, was sidelined due 

to a knee injury after the FSC- 
West Virginia Wesleyan 
game. Because of the 
seriousness of his injury, the 
senior captain was operated 
on and ended his college 
campaign after 1 5 games of 
the '78-79 season. Claudio 
came up with an 1 1 .9 points 
per game average and 
received special honorable- 
mention on the AII-WVC team. 

Also completing his college 
basketball career was Harvey 
Austin. The senior center won 
AII-WVC honors along with 
junior Leroy Loggins. Austin 
ended his season with a 1 7.4 
points per game average and 
an 8.8 rebound average after 
25 games.

drawn students from all 

over the nation and world. 

MOUND staffers

distant places, to find out 

why they chose Fairmont 


Don Masterson of 

Huntsville, Ala. met swim 

Coach Steve Mahaney 

when FSC was looking 

for a place to train 

overwinter break. 

The freshman 

received a 

scholarship and 

a place on the 

swim team. 

Polizzi of 
N.Y., met 

Mahaney through teammate 

Mike Kraiza, also of Marlboro. 

The business major received an 

academic scholarship. "I came 

to swim but I like it because it's 

small and you can get close to 

your teachers." 

Coming from Houston, Texas, 
was Don Burns. Involved with a 

well-known swim team, Dad's 

Club, Burns was found by 

Mahaney. Besides having good 

swimmers, Burns had another 
purpose for FSC. "I'm thankful 

for the growing-up experience 
of being far away from home." 

Despite her parents move to 

Fairmont and back to Bath, 

N.Y., Diane Simms remained at 

Fairmont because of "friends, 

swimming and the good 

elementary education 

program." Bill Rossiter, Kraiza 

and Dave Miller were seeking a 

chance in the nationals, 

something for which FSC had a 


Tennis player Luis Orteza,

Dr. Sam Church gave Hinkle a program to work with

20 wind sprints. 

"Wrestling Gifford three times at practice helped both 
of us in placing so well. We just beat each other up

One of the deciding factors was having the national

Diamondmen plagued 
by problems 

If enthusiasm and desire would win games, the Falcons should 
have won every game. But they don't and the Falcons didn't. 

The Falcons started the season by playing NAIA powerhouse 
California State, Pa., in a doubleheader. The two losses were the 
first of seven straight. However, several of the defeats were by one 
or two-run margins. 

As the season progressed, the diamondmen split doubleheaders 
with A-B, Glenville, and Wesleyan. Freshman Kevin Stalnaker and 
Frank llacqua lead the team in hitting with .372 and .302 

Pitching has been the biggest problem for FSC in the last few 
years. The hurlers run into problems of all sorts — from sore arms 
to control. This year there was a good staff but frequently they 
would "serve up a few gopher balls" that 
shifted the game's momentum. Dave Gibson, 
Bill Keeler, and Dave Hannah notched wins, 
while Bob Harmon, Scott Kayser, Ken Bissett, 
and Andy Pollack figured in some decisions. 

The coaching situation was also a problem this 
season. Dr. Allen Colebank had an illness in the 
family which consumed much of his time and 
energy. He did however keep the program alive 
and was aided by assistant Ken Beerbower. 
Beerbower served as acting coach during pre- 
season conditioning and several of the games. 

Next year's team will return with a solid 
nucleus. The lone senior and captain, Nunzio 
Bonamico, will be the only starter graduating.

Golfers have 
strong finish 

Fairmont's golf program is on the 
upswing. After a slow start, they 

came back to finish strong at the 

season's close, according to Dr. 

Edward Grose, golf coach. 

When the Falcons began the 

season, they finished 1 6th in a 

1 7-team field. But, the next match 

they moved up five spots against 

major WVIAC foes.

NAIA or NCAA: Qwitch or fight? 

The basketball program at 
FSC would benefit most with 
a changeover to the NCAA, 
but even this mentor isn't in 
favor of it. 

"Basically, I'm for us to 
remain with the NAIA," 
stated basketball coach Joe 

"I think that the NAIA will do 
more for us than the NCAA," 
he added. "The NAIA is 
basically for small colleges." 

The biggest drawback of the 
NAIA according to Retton is 
that they only pay part of the 
expenses for a team to go to 
post-season tourneys while 
the NCAA pays the whole bill. 

With as many post-season 
tourneys as the Falcon 
basketballers have 
participated in over the last 
decade, it certainly would 
have meant a big difference 
in the budget of the FSC 

But Retton feels that perhaps 
the NAIA will change its 
policy concerning post- 
season expenses if enough 
pressure is put on the 
organization by its members. 

"I think that we should stay 
NAIA," commented coach 
Dave Ritchie. 

The Falcon football mentor 
said that there would be more 
scholarship help if FSC went 
NCAA, but still "we're better 
off in the NAIA." 

Ritchie said that the NAIA 
was geared more towards 
helping the small colleges 
while the NCAA gives more 
help to the larger universities 
and colleges. 

"I'm just as happy right 
where I am," he concluded. 

To be or not to be NCAA? 

That was the main sports 
question during the year. 

But that question seemed 
settled according to Colin 
Cameron, FSC athletic 
director. He said that FSC 
would stay with the smaller 
NAIA "unless someone can 
show us some other 
advantage of the NCAA that 
we aren't aware of at the 
present time." 

Cameron added that if FSC 
joined the NCAA "we would 
be a little fish in a big pond 
while now, in the NAIA, we 
are a big fish in a little pond.' 

He discussed the idea with 
FSC coaches and during a 
vote, seven voted to stay 
NAIA while three opted for a 
"joint affiliation" with both. 
No coach voted for a 
complete switchover to the 
larger and more prestigious 

"We have some complaints 
with the NAIA," explained 
Cameron, "but we feel that 
those we have can be

and organized plays guided by a coach and staff. Is 
it possible, that some can have exceptional 
interests that still produce that quest humans 
desire? To satisfy that hunger, people have 
discovered sports and games that let them make 
rules, develop techniques or styles for their own 

needs. Whether it's backgammon or biking, inner 
pride is sufficient for the sole person. Yes, joggers, 
card players, hunters, kayakers and who knows the

Division of Commerce: 

Learn by doing in a variety of experiences 

Opportunity is important in higher 
education. And with this in mind, 
the Division of Commerce has 
provided students with skill- 
oriented classes. 

Ranging from accounting to 

retailing, students in these 

classes must do exercises to 

acquire the desired skill. 

In the past year, a two-year course 

in real estate has been 

implemented. Also introduced in 

this past year was a two-year 

course in general business. The 

division is in the process of 

adding a banking course to the 


To help students gain "real 
world" business experience, 

internships with local businesses 

are offered. An internship with the 

U.S. Energy Department is also 


A unique feature of the Business 
department is the Business 1 99 
class, where students receive 
credit hours for taking a division- 
sponsored trip.

"In the block" is a phrase heard frequently by all 

at FSC. "The block" or Initial Performance 

Practicum is the final step in the professional 

education lab experience obtained primarily in the 

Marion County public schools. 

The lab sequence is a gradual blending of theory 

into practice — ending with full-time student 

teaching in the final year. 

With approximately 805 majors, the education 

division is one of the largest on campus. It 

sponsors Kappa Delta Pi and the Student 

Education Association for its students.

Division of Fine Arts: 

Draw, sing, perform 
— AND learn! 

Whether it be drawing on a canvas, singing in the 
"Messiah," presenting a speech, running a TV 
camera or portraying a character in a play, 1 50 
Fine Arts majors learn by doing in their studies. 

The gallery of the Fine Arts building contains work 

by the art students. In the classroom, drawings, 

paintings, sculptures and ceramics express the 

students' talents and feelings. 

Through private lessons and class participation, 

music majors develop their skills to present in 

public concerts and senior recitals. 

Collegiates, a singing group of about 40 students, 

is an active branch of the music department. Its 

travels include a tour of Europe during the 

summer of '78 and a tour of the state in the spring 

of '79.

The recent surge of physical fitness has America 
up and running, playing and thinking of good 
physical health. 

The Division of Health, Physical Education, 
Recreation and Safety offers practically every 
aspect of physical exercise. The growing interest 
brought a new baccalaureate degree in physical 
education, K through 12. 

Students in this field also attended the first classes 
in the new Feaster Center. The curriculum is 
devised so that one-third of the program is devoted 
to activities such as field or court sports. Students 
enrolled in one of the programs decide upon the

experimentation relating to possible future 


This year a class in Environmental Biology, 

Biology 1 03, was added to the curriculum as an 

alternative to the second semester of 

Introduction to Biology, Biology 1 02. Either 

class will fulfill FSC's general studies

Division of Allied Health: 

Mastery of skills essential 

In medicine, there is a dependency on skill. Giving 

shots and identifying illness and disease require 

study and lab experience. 

Covering a large range of health fields, the Division 

of Allied Health offers such programs as 

respiratory therapy, medical technology, nursing 

and veterinary technology. In February, 1979, a 

new four-year degree in Allied Health 

Administration was added. 

Manual technical procedures are required and 
must be accomplished by students in all fields. All 

Allied Health classes have labs for learning critical 
technical skills. Students must be able to perform 

these skills before entering the hospital practicum. 

Division-sponsored organizations available to these 
students are the Student Nurses Association and 
the Student Medical Lab Technology Association.

"One of the best experiences 
to have in life is to place 
yourself in a different culture 
. . . You're all alone and 
have to make important 
decisions for yourself." 

Stacy Vickers, an FSC 
freshman, believes this 
because she lived it. As a 
foreign exchange student 
with Youth For 
Understanding, she traveled 
to Greece to "learn about a 
foreign way of life and 
culture." Originally from Los 
Angeles, Cal., Stacy was 
placed with a host family. Yet 
Stacy was to experience more 
than she expected. 

"My host brother was 
considered one of the top 
photographers in Europe. I 
met a friend of his who 

Different culture: 
A model experience 

wanted me to pose for some 
shots." Stacy then spent a 
full day modeling in the 
studio which proved 
successful — one of her 
pictures was used for a hair 
advertisement. She went on 
to pose for ads of European 

Still in high school at the 
time, Stacy was asked to stay 
in Greece under contract for 
six months. "I wouldn't have 
been allowed to go home 
during those six months and I 
was just 17 . . . America is 
my home and I guess that's 
what stopped me." 

Having modeled before at 
home, Stacy made a 
comparison. "I liked it better 
there (Greece) because it was 
a big deal to be an American 

— they also said I looked 
somewhat European." 

To Stacy, a future in 
modeling is uncertain. The 
pre-med student also sees a 
career in medicine as a type 
of "security" and "far-off" 
into the future.

Phil Morris, Weirton civil engineering major, 
likes "to make a challenge out of something 
that shouldn't be a challenge." He draws from 

A traditional artist, he started drawing from 
memory because he didn't like people watching 
him. He studies for a few minutes whatever he's 
going to draw, then goes back to his room and 
starts creating. If he has seen the place enough, 
he can draw it even if he's in another city. 

Memory is the tool 

Phil prefers the complicated drawing of whole 
cities, neighborhoods, train trestles, steel 
mills and the symmetrical building. 

"But I never give anything away unless I 
know I can remember it well enough to draw it 
again," Phil said. The pictures take anywhere 
from a few minutes to four weeks of on-again, 
off-again work. 

He hasn't taken any art courses here, but has 
drawn all of FSC and once drew the Language 
and Commerce building within a half-hour. If 
his scenes are of the country, he paints so he 
"can do it justice." He also paints the older 
cities, explaining that modern cities don't 
have much color so he draws them in black 
and white. 

Although offered a job drawing, he prefers 
drawing for pleasure. He feels "it drains 
one's talents and doesn't want to wear his

A double dose of danger 

Some people can't keep their 

feet on solid ground. Instead, 

they're exploring the 

unknown or seeking 

adventure and the excitement 

it builds. 

Freshman biology major Jim 

Talkington doubles his 

adventure — he scuba dives 

and sky dives. "Skydiving is 

considered the most 

dangerous sport, scuba 

diving is third." 

Jim took his first jump 
immediately following a 45 

minute class, under the 

direction of Mountaineer 

Skydivers, Morgantown. After 

a total of 13 jumps, Jim 

explains his reactions, "It's 

exciting. . . an inner feeling 

that's going wild." 

But Jim considers scuba 

diving "a lot more fun." After 

attending classes in this area 

sponsored by the Parks and 

Recreation Commission, he 

put scuba diving to practice 

at Cheat Lake and the Florida 

Keys. "There's more to it 

than skydiving. You see more 

interesting things." 

For Jim, the element of 

danger is part of the reason 

he engages in both sports. 

"Not many people do it. . . . 

With either of them, you don't 

know what's going to happen

Quccessf ul flight 
begins new interest 

"Flying to most, is such an abstract idea . . .1 

guess I succeeded in doing this not to be 

different but to succeed." 

Jim Scott, an FSC junior, wanted to fly a plane 

so he decided to try it. On Feb. 23, 1 978, he 

took his first lesson. Then by coincidence, he 

took his first solo flight Feb. 23, 1979. "This is 

an unusually long time before a first solo 

flight." But due to schoolyvJim was forced to 

take lessons at two different airports working 

with five different instructors and kinds of 


In order to pass the solo test, he was required to 

successfully take off and land three times. "If 

the instructor feels you're ready then I guess 

you are . . .I had developed enough 

confidence so I was eager to try it." Was he 

nervous? "I was concentrating so hard on the 

runway and the dials, I didn't think about it. 

"When you're going solo, there's no 

instructor to take over when you mess up." 

Only after he was in the air did Jim feel his 

"accomplished freedom. It's really a great 

way to relax." 

"As soon as I got the door open, I could see 

one of the secretaries coming toward me with 

a pair of scissors. It was a tradition to cut the 

tail off the pilot's shirt when he completes his 

first solo. So I let her cut the whole back out."

Coed places in Jamaica meet 

Beaches and ocean, a house in 

the mountains, and waterfalls 

. . . sounds like "living in the 

U.S.A.?" Possibly. Yet for Linda 

Cutlip, it was part of the 

everyday scenery when she 

competed in a track and field 

meet in Jamaica. 

Encouraged by her high school 

track coach, Linda, now an FSC 

freshman, and a teammate 

applied to compete in the 

International Friendship Games 

in Jamaica last summer. U.S. 

and Jamaica youth were invited 

to attend a track and field meet. 

"It was an opportunity because I 

got to meet other people from 

not only Jamaica but the U.S." 

The accounting major was 

surprised by a grassy field, 

something she wasn't used to 

running on. "We more or less 

represented ourselves in the 

meet.. . . Some of the people 

even competed in their bare 

feet." Categorized according to 

age, Linda ran the 220 and 440 

and placed second and third, 


"It really opened doors for me. I 

got to meet some really 

competitive people that were 

giving everything they had."

Dedication to studying and activities requires 
self-control and pride. Dedication to helping 
others requires something more. 

Jill Brock, a post graduate now studying library 
science, wanted to help in foreign countries 
with illiterate societies. After many inquiries, Jil 
and her husband chose the Wyclisse Bible 
Translators for their mission and Papua, New 
Guinea became their destination. 

New outlook gained 
through helping 

In 1 969, Jill and Joe Brock took their two 
children and entered a new culture. "You get 
a new perspective of a new society and an 
unusual perspective of your own in the United 
States." The primitiveness was challenging to 
Jill but "didn't pose any problems. I guess it 
was because we were guests in their country 
. . . it's a fairly young nation yet they have 
some things to appreciate . . ." 

Joe was involved in agriculture and Jill taught 
music K through 1 2 but without salary.

Coed enjoys Sports Information Director job 

Keeping statistics . . . 
preparing press guides . . . 
writing press releases for the 
local papers . . . endless phone 
calls . . . answering sports 
questionnaires . . . Sound like 
fun? Well for Rachel Gross, FSC 
Sports Information Director, it's 
been a year-long job. 

The senior journalism and 
library science coed accepted 
the SID job last July, when 
Athletic Director Colin Cameron 
selected her for the position. 
Her previous work as Sports 
Editor of THE COLUMNS and 
her love of sports were her 

"I had had no previous 
experience keeping statistics 
for basketball or football. I 

basically had to learn 
everything about statistics," 
Rachel explained. 

And what are the problems of 
being female in a male- 
dominated sports world? 
"Being a girl is somewhat of a 
drawback in this type of job," 
Rachel commented, "because 
people really capitalize on the 
fact that you aren't a male like 
most SIDS. When I first went to 
the tournaments in Charleston, 
everyone in the hospitality room 
and on press row was male 
except me. It was a little 
embarrassing at first, to say the 

Throughout the year, Rachel 
received assistance in keeping 
game statistics from students 

Kelli Costa, Brent Reed and 
Mark Vees, and Jennings 
Orwig, a former SID, who also 
assisted in preparing the 
basketball press guide. 

"The major highlight of this 
year as SID has been that it 
enabled me to meet a 
tremendous amount of 
interesting people. I met some 
very prominent people and I 
was really impressed that they 
were so nice and willing to help 
in any way," commented 
Rachel, also the last FSC 
student to serve as Sports 
Information Director, with the 
hiring of a full-time person for 
the position.

Falcon tours Africa 

Last Summer, Dave Jasper played basketball for a team 
other than the Falcons. 

Sports Ambassadors is a Christian Overseas mission that 
sends soccer, basketball and baseball teams to different 
countries. Dave visited five countries in Africa where he 
and his teammates played against Olympic and club 
teams. "Each of us had a chance to share the gospel and 
give our testimony." 

In addition to games, the ambassadors visited area 
villages and sponsored gospel clinics. "I enjoyed the 
atmosphere of the countries . . . they were kind, 
considerate, and very open to us." 

When asked about the value of the tour, Dave expressed 
seeing "a deep need for the ministry here and abroad. 
We're really gifted to have so much . . .."

Radio 'magic' 
intrigues 'Qtranger' 

"Good afternoon, I'm the Redheaded 

Stranger and we'll be with you till 7 p.m., 

sitting here keeping the chair warm and 

playing the songs you want to hear ..." 

With these lines, Karen Drummond 

introduces her daily show on station WKKW- 

FM, Clarksburg. 

"In high school, I decided this is what I 

wanted to do ... I like to entertain people and 

that's my way of doing it." A junior, Karen 

also works on her music merchandising 

degree while keeping the 4 to 7 p.m. hours 

Monday through Friday, with an additional 

show on Sunday morning. 

A dislike for country music can be difficult in 

a station with a bluegrass and country 

format. "But, I'll admit that I've learned a lot 

about country music and its performers." 

The "magic" of radio challenges Karen. "You 

can't be fake with people on radio . . . that's 

what I can't stand about television. With 

radio, people can't see you so it's nice to be 

able to create and present your own image

Manchin driver named MVP 

Mike Norris, senior business 
major, worked as a chauffeur 
for Secretary of State A. 
James Manchin. Mike, who 
worked for the Secretary for 
two summers, got the job by 
helping him campaign for 
office. "Overall, I enjoyed' 

working for him but I don't 
plan on going into politics." 

One of the things Mike 
remembers best was flying to 
Washington to play Softball 
on the White House lawn 
against Secret Service men. 
He played on the Utility 
Contractors team because 
Manchin was their coach. "It 
was a neat feeling playing 
against people who were 
associated with the President 
of the United States every 
day. Although it wasn't a well- 
matched game . . . that is, if 
you can picture in your mind 
playing against men who 
were almost all 6 feet 3, 230 
pounds and muscles. They all 
really didn't have great 
personalities. They lacked a 

lot of the joy of living. But I 
guess it's because of their job 
and its seriousness." 

At the end of the game, Mike 
was chosen most valuable 
player, which surprised him. 
"I guess it was because I hit 
two doubles, drove in three 
RBI's and caught a couple of 
fly hits. I was an outsider and 
Manchin's chauffeur." 

When asked about the 
responsibility of his job, Mike 
gave credit to Manchin. "We 
really never were in touch 
with rough crowds but if we 
were, Manchin could handle 
it. One thing I did gain is 
admiration for the way he 
handles people."

AIAA presidency: 
the ideal 

"It's been the ideal opportunity for me to 
meet and work with noted professionals in 
the field, to be exposed to a variety of 
philosophies of education, to further 
develop leadership and decision-making 
skills, to view the 'job market' and graduate 
programs nationwide, in addition to my 
first traveling experiences." 

Serving her second term as president of 
the American Industrial Arts Association, 
Greta Boroff finds opportunity in her 
position. She was first appointed in Feb. 
1978, at the national conference and was 
re-appointed February 1979. President of 
the Executive Board, Greta heads an 
organization heavily dominated by males. 
"The AIAA membership may be high in 
male populous but not necessarily in 
dominance. The Association is open 
minded and welcomes the 'female touch' 
we add to our reports, presentations, 
meetings and journals. As a matter of fact, 
this year, two of the ten voting members of 
the Executive Board are females; the 
second is serving as president of the 
Council for Industrial Arts Elementary 

Duties for Greta are generating information 
concerning industrial arts and different 
programs across the country; planning a 
collegiate program; and getting ideas for 
the national arts program. 

"One of the 
instructors here on 
campus once told me, 
'An organization is 
only worth what you 
put into it. . . . You 
work hard for it and it 
will work hard for you. 
Right now — I 
couldn't agree with 
him more!"

Horticulturist wins 
national award 

Triumph is a good feeling, 

especially if you've worked 

hard to earn it. 

Terry Grieco, freshman 

elementary education 

major, attended the 

National Junior 

Horticulture Association 

convention last year and 

returned with a national 


"Horticulture deals with 

plants — ranging from 

cooking them to growing 

them," said Terry. "During 

this convention, there were 

three competitive 

categories: public 

speaking, visual 

demonstration and 

identification. I gave a 

visual demonstration on 

herbs." Terry received one 

of three national awards in 

her category. 

How did she get interested 

in horticulture? "I've been 

in 4-H for 1 years. For the 

past four years, our club 

has been involved with 

horticulture and NJHA." 

"You don't expect to win 

because the competition is 

so great. But this topped 

anything that happened 

the whole year and it was 

great because I had 

worked hard the whole

Three fourths of the roof of 
Fairmont Senior High School 
was destroyed in a fire Feb. 27 
at 7:45 a.m. The fire started in 
the attic area with electrical 
wiring, damaging 1 5 rooms and 
destroying all of the records 
and audio visual aids. 

Lasting for three hours and 
causing nearly $1 million in 
damages, the fire gave 1 ,200 
FSHS students a short vacation 
until repairs were made. Also 
without a school were nine FSC 
students who were to begin 
student teaching on March 12. 

After a temporary roof was 
placed on the building, classes

Forensics team captures national awards 

The FSC forensics program includes debate 
activities, individual speaking events and an annual 

oratorical contest. 

The two competitive teams, debate and individual 

events, have been extremely successful in the 

eastern United States. 

FSC debaters have participated in 1 75 

intercollegiate debates during the past year. In 

those numerous tournaments they have seldom 

failed to return home with at least one trophy. 

The varsity team won second place at George 

Mason University, and third place awards at Ohio 

University and Marietta College. 

Individual trophies were also plentiful. Pat Wilson 
received first place junior varsity speaker award at 

Marietta College, second place at Ohio University 

and third place at Wesleyan. Thorn Haller won first 

place junior varsity at Ohio University. 

The team has also won national recognition for 
qualifying for the National Debate Tournament for 

two of the past five years. 

The individual events team has also won honors for 

FSC. They have qualified for participation in 

Nationals for the past five years. 

The team won fourth place sweepstakes at 

Youngstown University, and Miami University, and 

fifth place at Ohio University. 

Many members won first place individual trophies. 

Tom Stevick and Steve Jones received top honors 

in improvisational acting at Clarion State, second in 

dramatic duo at Miami University. Jones received 

first place in dramatic interpretation at Youngstown 

University. Pat Stankwich received first place in 

dramatic interpretation at Youngstown. John 

Hofbauer won first place in impromptu at 

Shippensburg State College, and Gale Ayanru won 

first place in poetry interpretation at Youngstown. 

In April, the heirs of M. M. Neely sponsored an 

oratorical contest for FSC students. Monetary 

prizes are awarded to the top three speakers. The 

Neely contest has been held for the past 30 years.

One of the biggest items in the 

news recently is the situation 

between the U.S. and the People's 

Republic of China, but not all 

people have the background to 

know what significance this holds 

for everyone concerned. 



FSC has its own expert on 

Chinese affairs, Dr. Yu San 

Wang, chairman of the Division 

of social science. He holds a 

Ph.D. in international relations 

and has written various articles 

and a book on Chinese politics. 

In the 1 950's and early 1 960's, 
after the takeover by the 
Chinese Communists with 
support from other communist 
countries such as the Soviet 
Union, the relations between 
the USSR, the U.S. and China 
could be likened to an off- 
balance triangle. (See 
diagram.) China and the USSR 
signed a treaty in 1 951 and 
thus isolated the U.S. from 
them. This resulted in "the Cold 

In the late 1 960's and early 

1 970's China and the Soviets 

drew apart because of historical 

hatred, political difficulties, and 

other problems, according to 

Dr. Wang. As the long-held 

Division Chairman Wang 

expresses views 

on China, Vietnam 

grudges pushed China and the 

USSR apart, the U.S. and the 

USSR drew 

"The U.S. finally realized the 

only way to maintain peace and 

stability in East Asia without 

war was to have a triangular 

balance of power." 

— Wang 

closer (See diagram) due to 

nuclear agreements such as 

SALT (Strategic Arms 

Limitation Talks). 

"The U.S. finally realized the 

only way to maintain peace and 

stability in East Asia without 

war was to have a triangular 

balance of power, making 

Communist China stronger and 

the relationship between them 

stronger," Dr. Wang 

commented. (See last diagram.) 



In 1945 the USSR provided 

military support for the 

Communist faction in China, 

because they thought they 

could influence China. As a 

result, the USSR built satellite 

countries. After 1951 China 

said the USSR could no longer 

dominate them and the close tie 

was broken. 

"The U.S. wanted to help 
increase the capacity of China 

as to equalize the power. Both 

countries had a mutual interest. 

That is why the U.S. recognized 

Communist China and 

suspended their relations with 

Taiwan," he added. 




"My conclusion is that the 
present leader, Teng Hsiao- 
ping, says that Communist 
China will not take over Taiwan 
by force, but dependence 
cannot be placed just on the 
leader. If he were to die and the 
radical leadership gained

control of China, the U.S. would 

not be present militarily to 

protect Taiwan as it once was. 

The U.S. is not taking it 

seriously as such," Dr. Wang 


"International politics are very 

difficult to predict. The only 

thing for any country to do in 

their foreign policy is to conduct 

their policy on the best of their 

knowledge and assessment of 

the future." 

Shortly after the normalization 
of relations between the U.S. 
and China, China began a 
military offensive against the 
recently united country of 

Dr. Wang was asked to give his 
opinion on the subject and 
supply some background 

The area traditionally called 
Indochina, comprised of the 
countries of Laos, Cambodia 
and North and South Vietnam, 
was a French colony for over 50 
years, until 1954, when the 
French turned the problem of 
Vietnam over to the U.S., who 
had been supporting the French 
in their efforts. 

"They went into Cambodia with 
a gun in one hand and a 
government in the other. " 

— Wang 

After 1975, Laos, Vietnam and 
Cambodia were all under 
Communist control. Wang said, 
"Vietnam was so ambitious she 
wanted to get rid of Cambodia's 
government and put her own 
choice of leaders in 

Vietnam did this just before 
Christmas 1978 when she 
overthrew Cambodia's own 
Communist government and 
installed a new one. "They went 
into Cambodia with a gun in 
one hand and a new 
government in the other," he 
further commented. 

This was the first factor leading 
to China's action against 
Vietnam. "The second reason 
was because the USSR was 
trying to encircle China. The 
Soviet Union would do anything 
to support Vietnam to upset 


The third factor was the 
agreement Vietnam made with 
Laos in an effort to make 
Cambodia and Laos satellites. 
"These three countries unified 
could become very strong and a 
threat to China eventually," 
Wang explained. 

The U.S. openly does not 
approve of China's military 
action against Vietnam, either. 
The U.S. indicated to Teng that 
China should restrain herself. 
The Chinese government in 
turn said they would take 
military action against Vietnam 
if necessary to punish them for 
taking Cambodia by 
force, but that they had no

territorial ambitions and would 
withdraw when they felt their 
mission was completed. 

It would serve Russia's purpose 
if the conflict continues 
between China

and Vietnam, because it will 
relieve the pressure on the 
Russian border and redirect it 
at Vietnam," he said. 

Wang concluded with the 
comment, "As a student of 
international politics, I feel it is 
wrong regardless of who 
invades whom." 

Europe . . . What a trip! 

212 Europe 

Cramming a tour of six countries into two weeks 
is hectic. But 41 FSC students, faculty and area 
residents managed it March 30-April 14. 

They toured England, Belgium, Germany, 
Switzerland, France and the Netherlands. 

As the countries, currency, weather, and 
language changed regularly, the food did not. It 
remained pork. 

Highlights of the trip included: the Basel Zoo, a 
side trip to the Swiss Alps, pastries, shopping, 
beer, the Mercedes-Benz museum, the 
Rhinefalls, Rembrandt's "Night Watch" and the 
boat ride on Amsterdam's canals.

"I'd like to go back there 

someday if they ever settle 

down," said Mary McGrath, 

sophomore psychology major, 

about her summer in Iran during 


I didn't feel that I was in any 

personal danger because 

military personnel patrolled the 

streets at all times. How can you 

feel that you're in danger when 

there are guys walking around 

with sub-machine guns?" Mary 

visited Shiraz, Iran, when the 

Shah was still in power, but since 

then the Iranian leader has left 

the country and Ayatollah 

Khomeini has taken over amid 

terrorism, violence and 

destruction. Most Americans 

have been evacuated following 

anti-American feelings and those 

still there are receiving threats. 

"I could feel the unrest, I knew it 

would come sooner or later," 

Mary said. 

214 Iran 

"A friend of my sister was shot in 
the eye." Her family was affected 
as her mother and sister were 
"escorted out of the country" in 
December. Her father left in 
March after the overthrow in 

The Iranian military has a funny 
way of conducting war games, 
according to Mary they "took 
over gas stations" as part of 
their maneuvers. 

She said that Iranians drive 
anywhere they want and in any 

manner, the country is littered, 
and "you aren't supposed to 
wear shorts or halters in the 
streets," even in the 125 F 
Iranian weather. 

The native American stated that 
most people there do their 
shopping in open-air shopping 
bazaars instead of the few 
western shopping centers and 
supermarkets. "Their main 
dishes are rice, lamb, tea and 
kabobs," she added. "The only 
beef I saw was what my father 
brought home."

Twice each academic 
year, students find 
better places to spend 
their evenings than 
talking on the phone 
or at friends' 
apartments. Finals 
week hits the campus 
and with it come more 
frequent trips to the 
library or the Nickel's 
study rooms, as 
students make one 
last effort in each of 
their classes. 

But once finals are 
completed, interests 
turn to outdoor 
activities, such as 
friendly softball 
games, car repair or 
just plain conversation 
with friends. 

And while some 
students prepare for 
graduation or hunt for 
summer jobs following 
spring finals, others 
are busy moving out of 
the dorms or into new 
apartments before 
another term begins.

This was my first, and last, year to work on a yearbook and, as 

luck would have it, I was editor. I must admit there's more to it 

than meets the eye; I've learned a lot and enjoyed doing it. And 

Kim Marsh 

it is finally finished!! 

Josie Plachta 

With a small, but loyal, staff we managed to miss most of the 

Kim Prickett 

deadlines. Yet we feel the book is better and has more coverage 

DeAnn Russell 

of events than ever before.
